Why Lea Michele Never Got Plastic Surgery

by The Insider 1:48 mins

Lea Michele has "Brunette Ambition"! While chatting with the "Glee" star about her new memoir, the actress revealed to "The Insider With Yahoo" why she didn't go under the knife early on in her career when Hollywood execs advised her to change her appearance. "Well, I think my mother would have killed me," Michele, 27, joked. "But, you know, I also really feel like thankfully I didn't. Thankfully, I listened to her and grew to really love myself, all my different parts. Because if I had changed that, I might not be where I am today." Back in 2011, the "Cannonball" singer opened up to Allure magazine about a specific instance where her mom put her foot down. "When I was 15, my mother and I went to meet a manager who said, 'You have to get a nose job in order for me to work with you,'" she recalled. "And then she says — this is a little TMI — 'Have you gotten your period yet? Because you can't have it done until you get your period.' My mom heard this and was like, 'This isn't appropriate. Thank you so much. Goodbye.'" Today Lea hopes to inspire other young girls to accept themselves as they are and to ignore traditional standards of beauty. Check out the video to learn the inspiration behind Lea's book title and be sure to tune in to "The Insider With Yahoo" on TV tonight for the latest in entertainment news.
